Shadow on Her Soul
By Lady E


Author's Note: Inspiration for this came to me when I was poring over a textbook on hemostasis in a research lab today. I partially used myself as a model for the "little girl," but as with almost all creative pieces, it's grossly exaggerated.

My first attempt at a song, or what resembles a song at least. Reviews are always deeply appreciated.


You see that girl in the corner there,
Lank, black hair draped all over her.
As if afraid her heart might tear,
She cradles her life, the staid loner.

(Chorus)

Little girl, little girl,
Wasting her life away in fear of adversity.
Little girl, little girl,
Too afraid to stand up, turn around, face reality.

So long she stays within the dark,
Shadow's fingerprints on her face,
That lurking demons and despair so stark
Enslave her in their pernicious embrace.

(Chorus)

Little girl, little girl,
Wasting her life away in fear of adversity.
Little girl, little girl,
Too afraid to stand up, turn around, face reality.

She thinks she's found her security
In isolation from the world.
No more pain, no more animosity—
She might be right but for her flound'ring soul

(Chorus)

Little girl, little girl,
Wasting her life away in fear of adversity.
Little girl, little girl,
Too afraid to stand up, turn around, face reality.

(Fade Away)

Little girl, when will you stand up, turn around, and face reality?


Thanks for reading!
